Introduction

Dogs are notorious for being watchdogs and always on the alert. Even a tiny dog will bark when they hear a disturbance and think something suspicious is occurring. For centuries, people have owned dogs as a way to alert the household, camp, or town to would-be danger. It is a job that most canines take very seriously. If your furry dog companion is always on the alert, you may want to pick a name that showcases that behavior.

Dog Name Meaning Alert Considerations

Dogs are made for survival. Their instincts have been honed by ongoing evolution. Such senses far surpass their human counterparts. A dog can alert their owner to trouble before it happens. Most of the behaviors that humans attribute to being miraculous, such as a dog knowing when their owner is going arrive home can be attributed to the animal's highly evolved sense of smell and hearing. 

Smell and hearing allow a dog to alert their owners to many disturbances. Depending on the breed, a dog's sense of smell is 10,000 to 100,000 times more accurate than a human's. The canine's sensitive nose enables the dog to smell danger and immediately alert their owner to any disturbances. It is also why dogs are used for tracking and search and rescue work. 

A dog's ability to hear is also fine-tuned. Humans can only understand in the range of 20 hertz and range up to 12,000-20,000 hertz, but a dog's hearing range goes from 40,000-60,000 Hertz. Superior hearing allows the pooch to easily hear sounds and disturbances that the animal's owner cannot decipher. 

The ear of a dog is even designed to fine-tune incoming noises. The muscles in the ear canal move and contract to let the dog better decipher the sound. This ability makes the dog's hearing even more meticulous. The canine's sense of acute hearing also means that they are far more sensitive to loud noises and other disturbances. Their hearing is one of the reasons why dogs respond so readily to dog whistles. 

Such abilities allow canines to alert their humans to impending dangers. It is probably one of the critical reasons that humans and their four-legged cohorts formed such an alliance. Early man relied on the dog's keen sense of smell and ability to hear distant noises as a camp alert system. The dog would sound the alert any time they heard or smelled danger so the camp inhabitants could prepare for risk. 

When considering a name for your pooch, you should take into consideration all of their unique abilities to alert you to the world around you.
